MTN FA R64: Hearts of Oak, Kotoko Progress

Hearts of Oak have qualified to the round of 16 in this season’s MTN FA Cup on Sunday after beating Accra Young Wise 1-0 at the Zaytuna Park.

Last season, the Phobians eliminated the second-tier side at the same stage courtesy an own goal.

Young Wise held the Phobians but they couldn’t contain the pressure as they conceded a goal on the stroke of half time after Joseph Esso scored from the spot.

In the second half, Young Wise pushed forward in search of the equalizer but the Phobians defended their lines to win the game.

At the Baba Yara Sports Satdium, Kotoko beat third-tier side Storm Academy via 6-5 on penalties after regulation ended 0-0.
